Mexico’s Congress is threatening to end to a cooperation agreement to combat drug cartels in response to U.S. President Donald Trump’s “zero policy” over immigration enforcement at the border.

A statement released by the Permanent Commission of Mexico’s Congress requested an end to bi-national collaboration with the United States in combatting cartels, immigration enforcement, and counter-terrorism, over the family separation controversy that is taking place at the border.

In the statement, the congressional committee “condemned ‘the cruel and inhumane policy of Trump’s government’ of separating girls, boys, and teens from their mother and fathers at the U.S. detention centers which are an affront of human rights.”

Mexican officials are describing the “Zero Tolerance” method where law enforcement officers are being urged to prosecute every illegal-entry incident.

The policy resulted in a heated debate over children being brought to government centers while their parents were left to face the court system in the U.S.

As part of their objection, the congressional committee summoned to terminate any bi-national partnership dealing with immigration, terrorism, and the struggle against organized crime until “President Trump conducts himself with the respect immigrants deserve.”

The committee’s chairman, Ernesto Cordero Arroyo, indicated that the U.S. is a valuable ally and partner and does not deserve a government like the one it has. The politician said that Trump “pushes and defends a hateful debate in and out of his country, where he gives rise to racist groups and promotes stereotypes at minorities.”

The committee requests for the lobbying of U.S. lawmakers and international groups to pressure the White House to stop Trump’s “attacks on minorities.”
